What's at stake: Hoping to be buoyed by a large, partisan crowd that includes emergency personnel taking advantage of First Responders Appreciation Night (four free tickets for First Responders, $9.11 price for everyone else), the Tigers will take aim at winning the 10th home opener of their last 11. Towson is trying to avoid its second 0-2 start in as many years and slogged through a 2-4 record at home in 2014. Although the team dropped its season opener, 28-20, at Football Bowl Subdivision's East Carolina last Saturday, the Tigers welcome an opponent that they have never lost to in three meetings, including a 46-17 shellacking on Sept. 22, 2012. The Red Flash pummeled Georgetown, 48-20, on Saturday, marking their first victory to open a season since 2006. But Saint Francis has not won its first two games of the year since 1975 and went just 2-4 on the road last season.
